i am in a family law trial situation where I am being sued for 300,000 for communication violations. there were mutual text and email messages between respondent and petitioner.
I understand Cecily 1200 hearsay exceptions rule text and email messages are not admissible.
there was a stipulation that included communication violations are charged at $1,000 each.
should the stipulation have been denied by court?
If the text were between Petitioner and Respondent, they are not hearsay. They are party admissions. I don't know what communication violations you're talking about. I would not agree to anything without talking with a lawyer. Is there a court order regarding the communication?
I don't understand what you mean by communication violation. Absent a restraining order to the contrary, there is nothing that says Petitioner and Respondent are not allowed to communicate.

...and wondering who recommended that you agree to a $1000 sanction? If you can contemplate that, then you can pay for a consultation with an attorney who can actually review your case file.
